    All that writer Cece Caruso -- a 39-year-old former beauty queen from New Jersey -- really wants to do is finish her biography of Erle Stanley Gardner so that she can finally stop obsessing about Perry Mason. Well, that and find a 1970 silk chiffon Ossie Clark to add to her collection of vintage clothing. And fix the broken front doorknob on her West Hollywood bungalow. But first she has to help save her daughter's foundering marriage, which is more than Cece could manage for her own.

    Overall

    I expected more from this author. The main character- Cece- has spent her career reading and writing about Perry Mason as part of her research on Erle Stanley Gardner however when Cece stumbles into her own mystery she blunders in the most amateurish ways; she picks up and pockets a ruby ring after discovering a body in a bedroom- seriously? She ignores some of the most obvious clues for the sake of furthering the plot; She appears to be completely oblivious of clear signs directing the reader to the murderer. I expect a bit of surprise in a mystery; I knew who the murderer was about 3/4 of the way through the book. Particularly when the author creates a main character who we are told is so thoroughly steeped in a famous mystery writer it was frustrating to have her go about solving this mystery in such a naive way. This author also believes it is appealing to a reader to hear continuous criticisms of her ex-husband. It wears thin.
